Top Ten Most Overrated Songs

TheGreatest

The Contenders: Page 2

21 Single Ladies - Beyonce

If you hate it then you should've put a lid on it!

Hey Kanye your girl Beyonce created on of the worst songs of all time!
Of all time!
Not to mention the video is really stupid. She has no lyrical depth whatsoever with this as a prime example of just how shallow she is.

Annoying, this deserves to be one. - LukeTargaryen

The start of the song has the "woop woop" like Stupid Hoe

22 Ravens - Mount Eerie

I'm sorry, but I just don't get it. Best song of the year? Nah. I don't think so at all because it's just so...boring. The story is sad but this is so boring that I just can't get myself to enjoy it. - DCfnaf

No. - ProPanda

23 Crank That - Soulja Boy

Nobody likes it, therefore its not over rated

All the idiots tried to look cool dancing to it and it got big and soulja boy got 15 minutes of fame, and now works at burger king

Pure cancer. One time I saw a guy dabbing to this song, and he called it a "classic". I think I lost brain cells from that statement.

24 Fancy - Iggy Azalea

In The chorus that little kiddish voice is somewhat catchy.

CLUELESS

This song is so obnoxious. It sounds like little kids are singing it, if you
call this music, you must be deaf. every time I hear this song I cringe.
I'm sorry, but I really don't like it.

WHO that WHO that I-G-G-Y? YOU SHOULD YOU SHOULD G-T-F-O!

25 We Are the Champions - Queen
26 Hello - Adele

Boring, depressing song. Amazing voice but song sucks

Boring, depressing. Just horrible.

This song is so BORING. There is nothing inspiring masterful or original about this song. Nothing about it makes you go wow. It's only popularity because Adele sings it.

Good voice, but it's just a bit boring. :/ - micahisthebest

27 Don't Let Me Down - The Chainsmokers

It was either this or closer but this is considered good more often than closer so this is why its on my list - christangrant

Yuk.

28 We Will Rock You - Queen

I swear to god, I got so mad when I saw Bohemian Rhapsody on the list (their best song, as rated as it needs) but not We Will Rock You (the MOST OVERRATED SONG IN HISTORY) First off, it's a boring sports anthem, with only drums and one guitar solo. Second off, 90 percent of the people that know this song have no idea what Queen is. Third, good GOD! I expected to see this as one of the top 10, and Bohemian Rhapsody is 7th? I know you can have opinions, but this... Good lord... I'm going to lay down for a second

I actually kind of agree with this. It's really good but I do think it's overrated.

This is such a dumb song. It took no skill to write, takes none to play, and the lyrics are really stupid, too.

You just listen to justin bieber and you don't know what real music is - Th3Zm0nst3r

This is more overrated than let it go

29 Hey Ya! - Outkast

I love this song so much! Yes! Another good song with no bad words! Rap songs with no bad words are cool.

Actually I'm fine with rap with cursing but I said that because I like rap as a whole. - AlphaQ

I like this song. It's not that overrated. Yes, the lyrics are repetitive but it has a good sound to it.

This song isn't bad, and is one of the better mainstream songs of the 2000s, but people only know outkast for this and the way you move. Not for each of their incredible flow and storytelling

Boring, generic song, that really goes nowhere! Except to the part of the brain that triggers annoyance X10

30 Whole Lotta Love - Led Zeppelin

This is a ripoff of two songs - christangrant

31 Heathens - Twenty One Pilots

Seriously? , What's So Good About This Song? , Its Just 2 Mediocre Guys Sounding Dark Song For A Horrible Movie

This is by far their worst song, but people like it because it was in Suicide Squad, I guess..not only does the instrumental suck, but the lyrics too. It's supposed to be a message towards the fans to stop mistreating new fans, but it's so lost in its own meaning, just like Blurryface was. If this is their new style, they're not lasting. 2/10 - naFrovivuS

Awful Garbage, I Can't Go Anywhere Without Anyone Praising This Trash - VideoGamefan5

This is great lol. - AlphaQ

32 Poker Face - Lady Gaga

I can't stand this song it actually sucks. So overrated

Do you want to smoke weed then din

NO why? THIS SONG IS PURE GOLD

Yeah...this song just annoys me.

33 Love the Way You Lie - Eminem

Seriously, what's so special about this garbage? Except that two famous sweepers are carrying it

You may think it's garbage because you don't know the storyline. That's why people don't like All About That Bass - AlphaQ

Eminem still is the best. Though I think Rihanna ruined it. Eminem still covered some of it to good.

What?! How can you call Eminem a clown? Eminem, one of, IF NOT THE GREATEST lyricists and musicians of all time! How?! YOU ARE AN IDIOT! YOU REALLY don't UNDERSTAND MUSIC

In terms of Eminem status, I'll say this isn't one of his best. Definitely preferred Not Afraid and No Love. - naFrovivuS

34 Bring Me to Life - Evanescence

Evanescence is a great band. And I understand that a lot of people love this song (I do like it also). However, I don't get why this song gets so much praise. I mean, I see that song getting a lot of views on YouTube and being number 1 on lists of "best evanescence songs" all around the internet (even on TheTopTens). There is a lot of songs from that band that deserves more praise than this song (The Other Side, Like You, Your Star, Going Under, My Immortal (my favorite), Everybody's Fool, Lithium, Sweet Sacrifice, Call Me When You're Sober, etc). Overrated doesn't means bad, it's just that it gets too much fame/praise. I like that song but really, better than My Immortal, Going Under and Everybody's Fool? Never. - BlueDiamondFromNowhere

This song is good, but it will never be as much of a masterpiece as My Immortal.

I hate the piercing, forced screaming voice of the fat emo who sings this.
I can not even take this band serious. All songs sound the same and have pretty much the same lyrics.
But hey, emo teens don't demand high standards, huh?

Never understood how anyone could like this song.
It's absolutely overrated. Sounds like an Avril Lavigne song.

35 Bennie and the Jets - Elton John

Elton John is overrated by so many old people it's not funny. - NuMetalManiak

36 Blurred Lines - Robin Thicke

Maybe once Robin Thicke hits puberty this song will be okay. Probably not. Also, who was dumb enough to put Smells Like Teen Spirit, Stairway to Heaven, Imagine, and Bohemian Rhapsody on here? - chris.cg.102

Most popular song of 2013 is so annoying and there are better songs this year.

I still don't understand how a song that took 30 minutes to make got so popular. The song is a plague.

My mom does not let me listen to this song - mayamanga

37 Lose Yourself - Eminem

Number 10 on Best Songs Of All Time? If that isn't evidence that Eminem is overrated, I don't know what is! - yaygiants16

This song is amazing - harr4

This song is overrated. And that means something's considering I'm an eminem fan. Seriously, not afraid and kings never die are 10x better than this

It's good but it is no Rakim really or even Amoc

38 Royals - Lorde

I don't understand why everyone is all like " ROYALS IS LIKE MY FAVORITE SONG" and how it's even "real music." Like come on there is way better songs too. This didn't even deserve to be #1. Same with Roar.

Royals is Extremely overrated. - Gamecubesarecool193

I HATE HATE HATE HATE HATE this song! From the other stuff I've heard from Lorde, I can easily say that she will be an artist that will make no good songs in my book.

I Despise this song. There's very few songs that make my head hurt to the point where I wanna die, and this is one of them. Stupid, egotistical, meaningless lyrics, bad instrumental and a talentless "singer". This is the kind of song I would use as torture.

39 See You Again - Wiz Khalifa

This is a good song! Although it might be just a bit overrated. Still, it's great! - micahisthebest

The song is (or was. Nobody remembers it nowadays) overrated by the fact people didn't know other sad songs that were waaay better

This is not a bad song... It's actually fantastic. No wonder so many people ' love it. - Napstablook

Song is not great, it's just boring, it's trying to be a sad song, but there are much better sad songs out there. + instrumental part is garbage not gonna lie.

40 Viva la Vida - Coldplay

I don't like Cold Play, but for this, X&Y, Talk, Clocks and Fix You, I make an exception.

this is a song from a rock band. but is this a rock song all i could hear was the piano coldplay has better songs than this

Coldplay are a great band, but this isn't their best song.

Lol calling Coldplay a "rock" band. Cut me with that edge
